Matthew Broderick takes TV role

Actor attached to star in NBC comedy pilot 'Beach Lane'

Matthew Broderick is coming to series television.

The actor, who had been courted by TV networks for years to headline a show, is attached to star in NBC's multicamera comedy pilot "Beach Lane," which was given the green light Monday.

Also on Monday, the network picked up another multicamera comedy pilot, "Perfect Couples."

"Beach Lane," from UMS, Lorne Michaels' Broadway Video and writer Paul Simms ("NewsRadio"), stars Broderick as a celebrity author hired by an irresponsible millionaire heir to run his struggling small-town newspaper in the Hamptons.

Broderick was approached to do the project months ago but would only commit after reading the final script.

His involvement in "Beach Lane" follows his guest stint on NBC's "30 Rock," which is exec produced by Michaels.

Michaels is exec producing "Beach Lane" with Marci Klein.

"Couples," from UMS and writers Jon Pollack ("30 Rock") and Scott Silveri ("Friends"), is a romantic comedy revolving around three couples, all with varying definitions of relationship perfection.

Actors become actors because they loved entertaining their family by putting on the lampshade and dancing around as a kid, ... That's not my personality. For me, the fun part of making movies is seeing it as a director sees it. I like the architecture of movies. I like knowing what's coming and working to set that up.”
